By day Ian Robb works at the Children’s Hospital of Eastern Ontario (CHEO). However, Ottawa-area residents likely know him as part of a harmony trio called “Finest Kind.”
His song “They’re Taking It Away” has been sung at demonstrations against cuts to public services. Now that song is available for free for a limited time from the website of Fallen Angel Music.
“They’re Taking It Away” is about “the bully boys of Bay street” who are saying “to hell with paying taxes, pull the safety net away.” The song is certainly appropriate as the McGuinty government ramps up for what appears to be a decade of austerity.
If you like the song, you can also buy the full CD.
